Dozens Of Black Skimmers

Dozens Of Black Skimmers

I’ve never had an opportunity with Skimmers like this morning last week. It was hard to know where to focus, especially since they were all at top speed.

Above, the Skimmers were fishing in large groups flying down the center of the pooling marsh waters.

Keeping focus was made even more difficult since they were spraying water all around and over each other.

The fish being caught were small but there was a large number. They all seemed to be catching one at some point.

What was just as amazing was we moved on to several other areas, each had flocks of Skimmers.
